Preparing tap timers for winter

  • Be sure you check with your local water authorities for any sprinkler bans
  • We recommend either reducing the watering time or turning it off completely
  • In really cold climates, we suggest that you remove the battery and make sure there is no water left inside the tap timer
  • If you live in an area that gets frost, we recommend taking off the tap timer completely and storing it away for the meantime

Andrew Stubbings (Melbourne, Australia)
Pretty Happy

Have been pretty happy with these timers.
Have not found any fault with them.

S.B. (Sydney, Australia)

Gave used for 8 months now, love having a battery indicator, huge flexibility in timing schedules and manual run time. Haven't had a problem with them so far

Mike (Perth, Australia)
Software and manuals are just crap

Still trying to get this thing to actually work (without success)

A.S. (Perth, Australia)
Timer lost connection, runs water until manual valve closure.

Recurring issue where the the timer seems to froze and lost bluetooth connectivity, resulting in the tap being left open. The only way for the timer to be responsive again is to open and reinsert the battery cartridge. This had happened a few times now. This timer cannot be trusted as a left-alone timer. Probably useful if you are at home and always keeps an eye on it.

Extremely extremely frustrating as water has been wasted.

And also, opening the battery cartridge means having to unscrew the pipe as it is a stupid design - see photos.
